InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Hvordan tilføjer man ugentlig raskmelding?
Hvis du går til menupunktet "Min side", er der til højre under "Min Konto" mulighed for at vælge "Administrer husstand".

Der kommer du til dit ugentlige symptomskema og kan enten blot anføre, at du er rask ved at sætte "v" i den lille boks ud for dit navn og trykke på "Marker som rask", eller du kan tilgå hele skemaet og angive symptomer ved i stedet at trykke på dit navn ud for boksen.
